Have you ever tasted the sourness of a tender tamarind leaf? She completely loved it! It brought out the child in her- the child who would play for hours together under the tamarind tree, listen to endless stories, eat fruits off trees and pickles stolen from her grandmother's food stores. Once you've had that taste on your tongue...there's no word to describe it, only a gleeful, eyes tightly shut expression.
Induri sarees are like Maheshwari sarees in their construction. Pure silk in the warp, pure cotton in the weft, with distinctive borders drawing from nature and the surrounding architecture. It is most often woven with a 'rui-phool' or 'cotton flower' motif in the border and carries vertical stripes in the body.
Indore is under three hours from Maheshwar, and it is said that in the early days of weaving in Maheshwar, since Indore was the better known place, traders and weavers referred to these sarees as Induri sarees. The irony is that while Maheshwari sarees have now become quite well known, the earlier designs of Induri sarees are not very commonly found.
Make these your own. Soak in history. Feel like a queen.
